U.S. Office of Personnel Management - Multi-State Plan Program Advisory Board

December 9, 2014 12:27 PM

The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is seeking qualified individuals to serve on an Advisory Board for the Multi-State Plan (MSP) Program.  OPM has entered into a contract with the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association and the Consumer Operated and Oriented Plans (CO-OPs) to offer more than 200 Multi-State Plan (MSP) options in 36 States, including the District of Columbia, on the Health Insurance Marketplace.

The purpose of the Advisory Board is to exchange information, ideas, and recommendations regarding OPM’s administration of the MSP Program, including plan design, branding and marketing, network adequacy, and other topics. Advisory Board meetings will serve as a forum for interactive dialogue and exchange of individual experiences and viewpoints among consumers, consumer representatives, and OPM staff. This forum will serve to better inform OPM’s policy development, rulemaking, and outreach activities with regard to the MSP Program.

The Office of Personnel Management is seeking MSP enrollees or enrollee representatives to serve on the Advisory Board. Enrollee representatives may include public health and/or healthcare professionals (including providers, navigators, and assisters) or members of consumer advocacy groups. 

OPM will select up to 15 Board members in 2015. Members will serve a two-year term and may be re-appointed. Membership is uncompensated, however; travel costs to attend at least two meetings in Washington, DC, will be covered.

OPM hopes to establish a board that represents all segments of society, including, but not limited to, individuals with disabilities; lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) people; rural or medically-underserved populations; racial or ethnic minorities; and members of tribes or tribal organizations.  For that reason, all individuals who believe they have relevant expertise or a perspective that would be useful, are encouraged to apply.

Interested individuals can apply online at: The announcement number is 15-CEG-Consultant, and it will remain open until February 16, 2015.  Additional information about the Advisory Board may be found here:
